On-device development...

For me, the coolest feature would be to allow on-device development -- have a BASIC interpreter running on the phone to let us create programs on-the-go.

Then, when you get home, move the code to the computer and use Basic4android to compile it to an android executable.

After all -- an interpreter is the root of BASIC :)

For me, I wouldn't care if the phone interpreter had any kind of visual designer. Something that would let me open a "something.bas" text file with my BASIC code and run it would be awesome.

I'm afraid that is not true. Basic4android, VB.NET and many other Basics have no interpreter but are true compiled languages. However, as it happens :) I do have a runtime interpreter for a dialect of Basic that runs on Android. See my BasicLib library. However the syntax is that of Basic4ppc which is more conducive to interpretation than that of Basic4android. I did consider converting it but the work involved didn't warrant the effort.
